“Brilliant place to stay”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a holiday package. As mentioned in other reviews the rooms are small but to be honest they are more than sufficient as most of the time we were out.
The location is stunning, we went on a long hike one of the days and it is the most beautiful place i have ever been.
We had 2 nights up at the sky station and saw an amazing display of northern lights both nights.
The food was absolutely amazing. I am vegan and the rest of my group are veggies and they catered for us brilliantly.
The best bit about our stay has to be the friendliness of the owners and staff. Mina and Dick are absolutely lovely people and made us feel very welcome. I also have to mention one of the staff, Klaus, who took us ice climbing, he is a great guy!!!
I would absolutely, without a doubt, love to go back to Abisko Mountain Lodge. I cannot recommend it more highly!!

Having travelled in quite a few places in Lapland we found this hotel a surprising oasis!warm and cosy with friendly stuff and excellent atmosphere it offers alot of activities you can participate..

i would add that this is not a budget place but very good for what you pay!

Fantastic! Great hosts, friendly kind helpful staff, great food, great excursions, clean rooms!
We booked with Activities abroad after being told our luggage would be automatically transferred onto second flight by AA it wasn't luckily enough we spotted our luggage on the carousel as we were waiting in toilet queue - bit of a performance as we only had 1 hour layover it was rushed and just made flight.
Dick collected us from airport in Kiruna approx 50 minute ride to Lodge where we were greeted by Mina and a cup of coffee or tea. We were given our itinery and kitted out with snow suits, boots, hats and gloves.
Rooms were on the small side but very clean and comfy. Need to loose the easy chair in room and replace with a tall cupboard of some sort for clothes storage apart from that rooms very great.
Breakfast and dinner was really tasty - we had to make our packed lunch in the mornings but this was no hassle.
Bar and lounge just lacked an open fire for authenticity! But once again it was very clean, warm and sociable.
The excursions were fantastic no hard selling excellent value for money - nothing was rushed. My husband and his friend privately hired a ski mobile for 4 hours unguided for £90 - amazing value!
Sami village visit was great - very hospitable people if you would like to buy a reindeer skin ( gorgeous) do so from here they are fantastic quality approx £60.
Overall great experience, great food, great people, great hospitality and met some lovely fellow travellers.
Northern lights did not fail us one night! Stunning gorgeous and magical definitely recommend this holiday - once in a lifetime trip definitely will come back again! But don't think I would visit Ice Hotel again good but no need to experience more than once in a lifetime

onderful place to stay to see the Northern Lights and sample snow based activities. Rooms are small but very clean and warm. Everything else is great - the welcome, the food, the friendliness, care and helpfulness of the staff especially Mina. The homemade bread was a treat and am armed with the recipe for their fruit loaf. We saw the lights too!

The accommadation is basic (but we were there to see the northern lights, not lounge around to use the facilities!) although it would have been much better if the room is slightly bigger and we have a table and an extra chair for both of us to sit down together.
Mina was very harrassed as we seem to be there at a busy time but she is unfailingly polite and will always answer your questions.
The food is good.
We especially liked the home made breads and soup while we could take or leave the main course. (moose, both days)
There was supposed to be a sauna but we never found it!

Room Tip: We were told there was a suite but we were too busy to check it out

We arrived by train from Kiruna. An easy walk in snow and cold temperatures to the hotel. Warm welcome at reception and quick check in. Nice double room, not large but met requirements. Minus 10 outside but warm and cosy inside. Large lounge area with TV, books and games. Free WiFi which is always a bonus. Had a 3 course dinner which was tasty especially the moose ragout!! The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable.

Only stayed 1 night so other than a visit to the Sky Station we didnt do any other activities, just chilled out . Other people were off on lots of different planned activities including snowmobiling, dog sledding.
Loved our stay and would definitely visit again. Well recommended.

This is how hotels should be - warm, welcoming, terrific food, helpful staff (thanks Sara and Lisa) in an amazing location with exhilarating activites right on your doorstep. Yes the rooms are small and tight for space (if you have large cases) but they are warm, clean and functional ... and this is all about location, location, location.

We booked quite well ahead through booking.com for 990 SEK pn for 2 ppl (breakfast included). We emailed the hotel direct who sent prices for the trips we wanted to do and they booked these for us - 2 hr dog sledging (1095 SEK pp), 2 hr snowmobile trip (1100 SEK pp), guided night walk (425 SEK pp) and the aurora sky station (790 SEK pp includes transport to/from). You have to do these things once!

We travelled to/from Abisko on the overnight train from Stockholm - if you wait until 3 months before departure to book this online (www.sj.se) you can get less flexible but more competitive prices. It really added to the adventure, however leave plenty of time between due arrival time in Stockholm and any onward travel as our return train arrived 3h20m late in Stockholm and we only just made our flight!

The aurora borealis was stunning for the 3 nights we were there (13, 14, 15 Feb) which made the trip truly amazing ... you might not get so lucky, but it is known as the best place in Europe to sight the lights. Go for it!!

Room Tip: There is a small number (about 3) of slightly larger rooms which you can request.
